This Is What $1,000 A Month In Rent Would Get You All Around The U.S.

Let's all move to North Carolina, people.

Posted on

Brooklyn — $1,000

Size: 300-square-foot studio

Neighborhood: Bedford-Stuyvesant

Amenities: It does have hardwood floors and high ceilings, but the kitchen is so close to the bed that you could probably cook an omelette while taking a nap. Also, there's a communal bathroom to share with other tenants, and nothing says "fun" like a toilet clogged with someone else's fecal matter.

Cleveland — $1,175

Size: A three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath, single-family home

Neighborhood: Cleveland Heights

Amenities: To start, it's a house. AN ENTIRE HOUSE, PEOPLE. There's a second floor and a two-car garage. Also, you know you're an IRL adult when you live in a house that has a security system.

Augusta, Georgia — $750

Size: A two-bedroom floor of a historic home that covers 1,100 square feet

Neighborhood: Olde Town

Amenities: A huge living room with a fireplace. A clawfoot tub. Central air. A massive backyard. And...wait for it...A PORCH SWING. Pack up your parent's car and move to this house RN.

New York City — $960

Size: Not listed, but seeing as your bed also serves as the doorstopper, probably not a ton of space

Neighborhood: Little Italy

Amenities: This apartment boasts having central air, but you'll have to enjoy it with a stranger...who will be your brand new roommate. (Yes, he already lives there.) You and this strangermate will be cool AF all summer long.

Portland, Oregon — $1,275

Size: A 1-bedroom apartment

Neighborhood: Belmont

Amenities: This spot has the hook-up for lazy people. Why? It includes a microwave and a dishwasher. Also, it's close to 3 bus routes so you can be driven around town by your chauffeur aka the bus driver.

Atlanta — $1,050

Size: A 624-square-foot studio in a trendy area

Neighborhood: Old Fourth Ward

Amenities: Well, there's a fully equipped fitness center and an outdoor BBQ complete with a picnic area, aka it's your time to get jacked and eat a ton of ribs.

Charleston, South Carolina — $1,000

Size: Not listed, but there IS a balcony

Neighborhood: James Island

Amenities: There's a pool and a 24-hour fitness center, and it takes only a couple of minutes to walk to Folly Beach, aka your quality of life is super legit.

These listings were updated and clarified to show more accurately what you get for the money.

A few others were swapped because the deal really WAS too good to be true and possibly a scam (lookin' at you Portland and Asheville). H/t to our commenters for pointing this out
